Art Stays is the most important festival of contemporary art in Slovenia, it takes place in Ptuj, the oldest city of the country, and fulfills the squares and buildings of the center with works of top artists creating in a variety of media: painting, sculpturing, photography, installations, video, performance and music. The 15th edition, entitled NATUR-AL(L), focuses on the nature and its safeguard. Noriko Obara is invited to realize a site-specific installation, on these theme, at Ptuj City Library.

"I will investigate local insects and via them represent the local environment in the library space. Insects are extremely sensitive to their living environment and transforme into various forms adapted to their given environments. For this reason we can know the nature of the environment in certain areas by its inhabiting insects. Solvenia's forest, which covers 60% of its land mass is rich in diverse insect life and is renown as a bee keeping area. It is from these things that I drew inspiration for the piece Book Worm", says the artist.
